6 Stylish alternatives to boring nursery essentials

I am not a huge fan of so called baby furniture--like, at all. I honestly do not get the point of spending thousands of dollars on a matching crib, changing table, and dresser, most of which will only get a few years of use before it is either tossed or sold for a fraction of what it was originally purchased for. Plus, most of it is just so generic and boring looking. My son's nursery is outfitted with second-hand, thrifted, pre-existing and found furniture, and I absolutely love the look we've achieved. It is completely unique, fun, kid-friendly and quite stylish.

I so agree with thrifting/second-handing/mixing and maxing for nurseries and really all rooms. Get rid of those changing tables! Ok… well, unless it has some pretty jenny lind turned legs.

I love the window seat storage idea! 


I love all the ideas but especially the ones of using other furniture instead of buying baby furniture and looking for items at flea markets or garage sales.


They are all great ideas.
